Google Plus Pages for Libraries

Google Plus Pages for Libraries | DIY Library Services | Scoop.it

Google Plus Pages are the Google answer/alternative to a Facebook (though I prefer to think of it as a complement for a full social media plan). Your library can use this powerful social tool to host video Hangout chats, isolate user and staff groups for targeted dissemination and conversations with Circles, and increase your Library’s social exposure with the +1 button.

Facebook Live Video Streaming from Your iPhone with Broadcast for Friends by Ustream

Facebook Live Video Streaming from Your iPhone with Broadcast for Friends by Ustream | DIY Library Services | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Broadcast for Friends is a new video streaming app from Ustream which allows to send live video from your iPhone to your Facebook page.

 

From the Mashable review: "...Videos can be recorded using either the forward-facing or rear-facing camera on your phone, and there are a number of built-in filters — which can be changed while you film –- in order to give your video a distinctive look.


A free download, signing up for BFF simply requires you to authorize the app via Facebook, a natural move since your ultimate goal will of course to be to broadcast the video you record onto the social network.


...An Only Me, Friends, and Public option shows up before you start, letting you decide how your video is shared.


...Once you select a privacy setting there’s a 3-second countdown and then you’re streaming live.


...Videos are only saved to your Facebook profile if you choose to save them once you’re done filming.


...As you’re shooting your video, likes and comments you receive on your Facebook post are displayed in real time on your phone.


...Broadcast for Friends will be available soon for the iPhone. You can sign up on Ustream’s website to be notified when it goes live."
